Distinguished Leader Speaker: Jerry Mitchell

Strong leadership is not bound by a position or title. Great leaders can influence the world at any level.
In her role as Chief of Staff, Jean Becker witnessed the fascinating story of George Herbert Walker Bush's life post-presidency, including being present during his death and subsequently serving as master of ceremonies at his state funeral. Written by one of the people closest to a former president, 'The Man I Knew: The Amazing Story of George H. W. Bush's Post-Presidency' gives readers an inside look at the highs and lows of running a presidential office from the inside.
